xterm(1)? Lots of things on FreeBSD (or UNIX in general) have so-called man pages. You access them through the man(1) command, I suggest reading man intro (intro(1)). In this case you can do man xterm. If you don't know the exact name you can try apropos(1) to search in the available man pages.

It's a terminal. The standard one that comes with Xorg. There are many more terminal applications you can use, some are a lot better than the standard xterm. I personally like x11/rxvt-unicode, other's are fine with Gnome-Terminal (from Gnome) or Konsole (on KDE). A terminal is, in essence, just a window that connects you to the OS.

Back in the old days this was done with actual physical terminals like the VT100 and VT220 because computers didn't have graphics cards back then, it was just a big box with some blinking lights and switches (PDP-11, Altair 8800, IMSAI 8080).
